I'll be picking up a new 380 cca battery and tie down tomorrow, so I decided to do a electrical shake down. For those watching at home, This is the safe way. First I have a 12VDC one-amp wall-wart, connected to a 1 amp meter, graduated in .2 amp scale (the little white box thing in the picture). This is connected to the battery cables (note the NEW RED Positive cable). A second meter is connected to ground and the Solenoid wire.

Test 1. Key off. Amps are 0

 

Test 2. Key on. Amps started at .1 then went to .2
Was confused as I expected a residual draw from the regulator but then noticed the low fuel light had came on. All normal.

 

Test 3. Key to start, Amps at .35  Heard the Assist relay click and noted 12 Volts at the Solenoid Connector.

 

Test 4. Connected Volt meter to PTO Positive, Key on, PTO On, noted 12 Volts at the PTO Connector.

 

I feel confident connecting a 300 amp battery up now.

I put about 1/2 tank of gas in him. Fuel light stays off as it should. No sparks or flames expected, but I am know to have the fire extinguisher close by.

Super Uber PANNIC ATACK AKK AKK. Tightening the PTO Bolt it went SNAP!
@$%^@$%@. Luckily it landed in my hand and didn't break any wires, and Double lucky there was enough thread sticking out to grab with vice grips.

All that is lost is the bolt, may have been stressed prior, or I user too much air pressure.

Luckily you're able to extract the broken end. Just sayin, the torque setting is something like 60lbs.

Got the battery and bolt this evening. Install both. I couldn't resist...... so all I planned on was a quick start up and shut down. Sprayed a little carb cleaner and he fired up and died. I blew into the blue tube till I saw gas in the filter and tried again. He fired up and kept running, Yaa! He was running real rich so I was looking around the carb for an adjustment, noticed a small drip from the bottom of the bowl, hmmm need to fix that later. About then it was getting to the point of stinging the eyes, even with both doors open and the fans going full blast. So I tried shutting him down. Wasn't happening!!!! I looked at alternated shutdown methods (eyes watering now) and remembered the tank shutoff, so I closed? it. The engine smoothed out and wasn't belching raw fuel now, actually sounded good at this point but I still needed to kill it. I grabbed the only set of pliers I have with rubber handles and pulled the plug wire. Whew! He died. I am still venting the shop.
I pulled the key switch and verified the M and G terminals are functioning properly, so I looked at the connector. Well there's your problembanghead3.gif I forgot to replace the G connector completely fing20.gif

Couple quick questions... Yea it's in the manual but eyes still stinging. Is the fuel tank shut off in the (in) position, or like an air tank which is the (out) position?

Do you think I need to rebuild the carb, or replace the gasket at the bottom bolt? It ran smooth at the end.

I'll correct the G terminal issue and check the V-Reg and a few other things tomorrow or Saturday.

If it smoothed out I'd try it for a few days, those micuni carbs do well. The mixture adjustment screw gets turned in til tight, then back out 1.5 turns. The bowl nut gasket is an easy fix.

Ok Looked at the OM Manual, All the way in is closed, CCW opens, So I think I have a float issue, as it smoothed out when I closed the valve. I have my marching orders tomorrow for things to correct before going forward. Thanks All!

Also need to add an exhaust hose (with Y adapter for the twins) to my Christmas list to vent the exhaust outside when testing. Shop is finally vented.

Added the missing key switch ground, and removed the bowl and float. All looked good but when I blew the line out I came up with this. (Shown in the gasket package) Re-assembled and continued testing. https://www.youtube....eature=youtu.be

Thanks! OK Looking for suggestions on changing the input seal. I have a new one, and found some brass bushings that should assist with installing it. How to remove? I checked the manual and it lists tools TGD213 and TGD 214, great! but not so Great.  http://www.ebay.com/...u9U9dyP&vxp=mtr

Any other alternatives to remove the seal?
